- The Forum, Norwich
The Forum is a community building in
Norwich, Norfolk. It stands opposite from the St. Peter Mancroft Church. Designed by Michael Hopkins and Partners, the Forum was built as a millennium project for the East of England. The building is home to the Norfolk & Norwich Millennium (NML) library, the local Tourist Information Centre, and the BBC EastStudio, where the regional television news bulletin BBC Look Eastis produced.
Since The Forum opened, the amphitheatre-like steps at the front have provided the venue for many different functions such as: amateur theatrical performances, outdoor opera, musical competitions, art exhibitions, processions, celebrations and a real-ice skating rink.
The Forum is part of
Norwich 12, a collection of notable buildings in Norwich spanning the Norman, medieval, Georgian, Victorian and modern eras.
